This set of five miniatures for bass clarinet explores the experiences of different states of mind:
I. Somnolence, n. a state of drowsiness; a condition of semi-consciousness approaching coma
II. Sharpness, n. a quick and penetrating intelligence; the cutting ability of an edge
III. Obstinacy, n. unyielding or stubborn adherence to one's purpose, opinion, etc.; the trait of being difficult to handle or overcome
IV. Doubt, n. a feeling of uncertainty about the truth, reality, or nature of something
V. Vertigo, n. a confused, disoriented state of mind; a dizzying sensation of tilting within stable surroundings
Each movement has an individual character but together they form a sort of continuum from passive inactivity to driving motion, and from safety to danger.
